    Is it Difficult to switch my ipod from Windows to Mac

    I bought my ipod when I only had a pc. I have since bought an ibook and I think I would like to use the ipod on my ibook since it's easier to plug in the docking station. I could also fool, around with my play lists while watching TV on the ibook. What do you guys think?

    When I got my new G5, I switched my iPod to the Mac and had no problem....it was a piece of cake. I had networked my two computers together and transferred all of the files on my windows pc to the mac. ...very easy.

    Then I went to switch my wife's iPod, come to find out that I really didn't need to. Even though it's windows formatted, it still works perfectly on the Mac (minus the iPod icon on the desktop). So she just uses it that way.

    So really, it's quite easy, but you will lose all of the songs because it reformats it.
